MP Lutz Heilmann reached an intermediate injunction against Wikipedia.de to stop automatic forwarding of wikipedia.de to de.wikipedia.org because of "untrue factual statements" in the article about him. Heilmann argued that Wikipedia Germany didn't enable a public response to the Wikipedia allegations. Users of the German Wikipedia were unable to reach the website. Wikipedia Germany does not run the German Wikipedia which is hosted in the United States. Lutz Heilmann postet a statement of apology on his website:
The case gave great exposure to the MP and his article also known as the Streisand effect.
The Foundation for a Free Information Infrastruktur (FFII) created a website
which tracked cases of injunctions related to "untrue" information. The group critizises the standards applied by certain judges and the extensive forum shopping that characterises the German Court contributions to the "Soviet Internet". Groups like these expect a reform of current law related to injunctions. Members of the European Parliament currently dicuss the "Soviet Internet" in the context of the French three strikes proposals.
